According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, those who have received their second dose in a two-series vaccine, such as Pfizer and Moderna, or two weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson are considered fully vaccinated.  “As we continue to learn more and more about the vaccine, it allows us to understand more what that means for us as far as going back to the normal life,” Dr. Tom Cummins, division chief medical officer at UT Health East Texas, said.

“Roughly two weeks after your second dose, you’re considered fully vaccinated at that time and that does start to open up some freedoms,” Cummins said.  Nacogdoches and Gregg County are reporting at least 20% of it’s adult population is fully vaccinated.
